Anything for Alzheimer’s is your one-stop, DIY fundraising hub.

You have decided to host your own fundraising event, signed up as a host and received approval from an Alzheimer Society staff member - now, all that's left is promoting and asking others to donate to your event! Here are some tools and tips to get you started and make your event a success.

Tools & Tips

1) Plan Your Event
Ask yourself the followuing questions:

  • When will it be?
  • Who do you want to attend?
  • How will you promote your event?
  • How will you collect donations?
  • What support do you need from us?

2) Maximize Your Event
Choose a day and time when people are gathering and create a theme for your Anything for Alzheimer's® event. If you're having a garage sale, have friends take home an item in exchange for a donation. Hold a silent auction to raise even more money!
